During your first two years on campus, you’ll take a ConnCourse—an interdisciplinary class where you will discover connections between your studies and real-world issues. Transfer students entering Connecticut College with 56 credits or more are exempt from this requirement.

In ConnCourses, students connect areas of the liberal arts and explore different modes of thinking. ConnCourses cultivates and encourages an integrative approach to learning and problem-solving. In addition, these courses help students develop fundamental skills that can be applied throughout their studies, instilling deep intellectual curiosity and a desire for lifelong learning.

How much can we really know about dinosaurs? How can an ancient religion be lived today? How do people explore, imagine and distinguish themselves as Hispanic? How truly free and independent are we from the influence of the state? How can Twitter feeds reveal public opinion? These are just a few of the questions you might explore in ConnCourses like “Theater of the AIDS epidemic”, “Clones, Cyborgs, Posthuman”, “Decoding Color,” “CoEvolution-Plants and People”, “Lost and Found in Translation”, and “Hispanic Identities”.
